Today I’m sharing an easy way to update old pottery by dipping them in paint. I’ve also added greenery to my dining room for spring!
I love a good upcycle project – taking something from a thrift shop and giving it new life. I found some pottery spice jars last year at my local thrift shop and I’ve been meaning to do this paint project to them since I got them. I’ll show you how I gave them a quick and easy update and how I added some beautiful greenery to my dining room for spring!
I’m participating in the Styled + Set Spring Home Style blog tour hosted by my friend Lory of Designthusiasm. If you are coming here from Cedar Hill Farmhouse, welcome! Be sure to see the other tours at the end of this post.

Paint Dipped Pots
1. These are the pottery spice pots I got last year. I love that they were that rough, unglazed pottery. I thought a ‘glaze’ over half of them would look neat and tried it out with white paint.
2. I used painter’s tape to cover the top part of the pot that I wanted to keep natural.
3. Then I dipped them into some white paint. I used Raw Silk from Fusion Mineral Paint and poured some into a plastic container so there was room for dipping.
4. Then I let them dry upside down. It took a good 12 hours for them to fully dry.
See how easy these paint dipped pots are to create?
I love that you can now see all the details that in the pottery that you couldn’t see before. They are now hip little vases.
Faux Greenery in the Dining Room
I added some faux greenery as well. I wanted these two little crock pots to have a plant but without proper drainage (and my black thumb) I thought it best to use realistic faux greenery.
Just these painted dipped pots and faux greenery have made such a huge difference to the dining room. I’m so glad spring is almost here!
